  • Catalogue Essay

    The Omega reference 145.022-69 is the last Pre-Moon model as it was designed before the first moon landing in July 1969 but only launched in December 1969 and in production until around 1971. The first models were produced with the Seahorse logo and brand name on the back while subsequent versions made reference to the moon landing. The watch features a correct "stepped dial" that is signed "T Swiss Made T" below 6 o'clock. The case is preserved in excellent condition, displaying sharp, sculptural lugs and also further accompanied by the original guarantee.

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1848

    Omega's rich history begins with its founder, Louis Brandt, who established the firm in 1848 in La Chaux de Fonds. In 1903, the company changed its name to Omega, becoming the only watch brand in history to have been named after one its own movements. A full-fledged manufacturer of highly accurate, affordable and reliable watches, its sterling reputation enabled them to be chosen as the first watch company to time the Olympic Games beginning in 1932. Its continued focus on precision and reliability ultimately led their Speedmaster chronograph wristwatch to be chosen by NASA in 1965 — the first watch worn on the moon.

    Key models sought-after by collectors include their first, oversized water-resistant chronograph — the reference 2077, early Speedmaster models such as the CK 2915 and 2998, military-issued versions of the Seamaster and oversized chronometer models such as those fitted with their prestigious caliber 30T2Rg.
